Wackes award winning Folksam helmet

In 2008 Folksam, one of Sweden’s biggest insurance companies, turned 100 years. As a part of the celebration, they wanted to communicate to the public that Folksam is the number one in traffic research and active work in regards to traffic safety issues.

As a trusted supplier of branded items, Wackes was given the assignment to come up with a creative solution that displayed Folksam in a trustworthy and positive manner.

Idea:
Produce and hand out 50 000 bicycle helmets in the whole country

Target Group:
The Adult Cyclist – highlighting security and vulnerability

Result:
• Folksam reached 231% of the total target for number of media features
• Folksam reached 390% of the target with advertisement value
• The campaign reached a total of 9 million readers
• The campaign created an enormous sense of strength and pride internally

“The whole campaign was thoroughly trustworthy! Everyone at Folksam assembled around this positive phenomenon. The collaboration worked very well, both locally and centrally, and we never had to worry about the product. We could follow the progress through the SAG Design portal, so we knew that deadlines were followed and that we would receive the product we expected. We were constantly updated via images, test reports and other documentation.”
– Folksam, 2008
